restructured so taxpayers moved to the back of the line. investors moved to the front of the line to get the money in case of a bankruptcy. bottom line is the white house says that is too much getting in the private deliberations of the executive branch. they won't turn them over but they will let the republicans look at them behind closed doors. not get copies of them. show them the white house believes there is nothing damaging in there. the bottom line no smoking gun but republicans demanding more documents. >> harris: you can't have two bottom lines but i am going to ask you about the aircraft carrier behind you. there is a basketball game. >> this is hard to miss. uss carl vinson. significant by the way, because this is the aircraft
